Alternative Jerusalem Series

I know it took me some time, seeing as I was getting married and all, but I have promised and I am keeping it, so here it is!

This is a series of postcards I call "Alternative Jerusalem." And every postcard has a sub-category of its own.

This is "Beautiful Jerusalem" showing six pictures shot around the city: the charming side streets of the Nachlaot neighborhood, a breathtaking view of the city from the Baka boardwalk, an art fair at the Sultan's Pool, a fruit market in Gilo, and the entrance to an old synagogue also in Nachlaot.

This is "Feminist Jerusalem" showing five pictures of graffiti around downtown Jerusalem. The grafitti reads "Castration - We Can Do It!", "vulva", "a rapist government, a women's uprising", "Taking the law into our hands" and "4 angry dykes".

This is called "Queer Jerusalem" showing a picture of a graffiti in downtown Jerusalem. This graffiti condemns the opposition of the religious community to the World Pride March in Jerusalem in 2006 by sarcastically stating "Thou shall not march," and proudly announcing that "Jerusalem belongs to everyone" with the lion symbol of Jerusalem modified into two lions mating.

These postcards are 15 cm x 10 cm each, printed in color on regular postcard paper. A description of the pictures appears on the back.

All three are now available for sale on my Etsy shop.

Watch out for more of them to come!
